Resumé & Cover Letter Preparation
A resumé is used to introduce you and summarize your experience, skills, education, and goals. It is often the very first impression you will make on a potential employer. Everyone old enough to work needs a resumé but even students who do not work will find a resumé very helpful for tracking their academic and extra curricular activities. In addition to your GPA, school course work and other academic items, volunteer work, community involvement, leadership experience, and athletic achievement can be featured in a resumé. A nicely formatted resumé with dates and descriptions for your academic and extracurricular work may get you noticed by a potential employer, a college recruiter, or even a scholarship reviewer. You will also find it handy to have all this information at your own fingertips when you find yourself filling out application after application, form after form. The following sites provide help with resumé preparation. Use them to find a sample or a template that you can use to adapt for your own.
